Why study here


The programme covers a wide spectrum of applied topics, ensuring that students acquire knowledge relevant to the needs of recruiters. We regularly provide employment opportunities for our students, with a large majority finding interesing position rapidly (see here for recent placements). As such, all members of the teaching faculty are professors and lecturers with the highest academic credentials and relevant practical experience – as executives, researchers, experts or consultants – acquired within leading economic institutions at both national and international levels.

The University of Neuchâtel promotes close interaction between students and professors. Only a small set of selected students are admitted to the programme, with an average of around 15-20 graduates per year.  All courses are interactive, and promote active student participation.
